A high standard of living is the just reward of hard work and intelligence.

If other people or other places have lower standards of living, then the problem is the lower standard, not the higher one. Raise others up, don't lower yourself. A high standard of living is a good thing, not a bad one - a universal moral g eneralization that includes you in particular. If you've earned your wealth honestly, enjoy it without regrets. aking money is a virtuous endeavor, despite all the lies that have been told abo ut it, and should properly be found in the company of other virtues. Those who set out to make money should not think of themselves as fallen, but should rathe r conduct themselves with honor, pride, and self-respect, as part of the grand p ageantry of human civilization rising up from the dirt, and continuing forward i nto the future.
